In late 2018, Marine and Safety Tasmania (MAST) commissioned a Bridport Foreshore Master Plan to provide a community-led master plan for the Bridport foreshore that provides recommendations on the future of infrastructure and opportunities with better access and improved amenity to the foreshore/waterways including: assessment for a new Bridport pier including recreational boating access, improved boat ramps, parking and launching facilities, and improved access to the port of Bridport. Burbury Consulting were engaged to consult with local stakeholders and interested residents to identify potential locations as well as infrastructure requirements for new and/or improved marine facilities. This consultation included community engagement sessions and formation of a project Working Group to develop, discuss and formulate opportunities for design development and investigations, site assessments and specific area studies, engineering design assessments, project costings and development of a business case for the proposed master plan with recommendations.

In January 2022, MAST released the completed Bridport Foreshore Master Plan to the public, and it can be downloaded in full below.
